9781564966070: Big Ideas for Small Spaces

Spatial challenges are elegantly translated into intelligent design solutions in this comprehensive volume. Big Ideas for Small Spaces shows efficient interior design for small spaces-lofts, apartments, cottages, attics, studios, condos, etc. Examples of work by internationally recognized interior designers clearly illustrate how small spaces can be transformed for beauty and efficiency. Effective space-enhancing illusions are explained in depth, both visually and with text. Includes reduced-scale floor plans in the "Furniture Arrangement" chapter; plus a special section on furniture that works well in confined spaces.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Mirrors, light, and glass are unbeatable interior finish materials that create an illusion of space. Used with skill, mirrors can go almost unnoticed -while the atmosphere they create is appreciated. Care must be exercised to avoid reflecting ugly joints, utilitarian shelf brackets or unexpected revelations from neighboring areas. Mirrors can have a backing of plain silver, bronze, antique finish or smoke. Applications include the front of cabinetry; between counter surfaces and upper cabinets; wall to wall in bathrooms; or on a closet door. The doors in a narrow passage and the interior surfaces of bookcases can be sheathed in mirror to increase the illusion of space. Masking structural columns, chases for heating and plumbing, or other undesirable architectural features with mirror will not remove them from a room, but will certainly make them less noticeable.
